i recently came back from getting my new glasses. & we were just walking until i saw a very elderly lady's house who i used to visit all the time. well, things got busy and of course my brother& i just stopped going as much. i then decided that misty (a girl who is living with us) & i should go visit her and it would make her day. so we went ahead and stopped by. she was super sweet. she is 87 years old and just talks so much it's hard to even leave. but i love it.
anyways, so we decided it was about time to go, and she said she had a christmas gift from last year. she went on explaining that she waited for us last year to come and see her and she had money for us. i felt... terrible. she had wanted to see us, and now we just randomly showed up, she loved it. i texted my brother and told him that she had money for him and that she wanted to see him. he went on explaining that he was too busy and she just talks a lot and i told him that she had money for him and that she missed him. he went on to explain that he had been a jerk and that he would stop by and see her. so tonight after he gets back from work he is going to be seeing her. i'm so glad. i felt terrible about her not seeing him for a long time. she is the sweetest thing ever. they have lived and learned, and been through so much more than us. they know what to say and what to do. they aren't afraid to to die, and aren't afraid to say what they think.
